Bankruptcy Court Holds Hearing on Motion to Uncover Information About Fidelis Sale 

“Anderson Report on Fidelis & the Mother Cabrini Foundation” Sheds Light on Bishops’ Strategies

(Albany, New York) – Today, federal bankruptcy Judge Robert Littlefield, Jr. heard argument about the Diocese of Albany’s role in the 2018 sale of Fidelis Care for $3.75 billion.

The pensioners’ committee filed a motion in the Diocese’s bankruptcy case seeking information regarding the Diocese’s role in the sale of Fidelis and the survivors’ committee joined in seeking the information requested in the motion. The pensioners’ committee represents former employees of St. Clare’s Hospital who allege that the Diocese’s actions contributed to the loss or depletion of their pensions. The survivors’ committee represents the interests of over 400 survivors who allege sexual abuse by priests and other agents of the Diocese. Judge Littlefield will consider ordering the Diocese to release the information.

The Report is based on publicly available information. It sheds light on the 2018 sale of Fidelis and the transfer of over $3 billion to the Mother Cabrini Foundation.
